TAMPA, Fla. -- Alex Rodriguez showed at the Yankees' minor league facility at 9 a.m. for his simulated game. He is expected to complete a minor league rehab game this morning.

THE LATEST NEWS: A-Rod's representatives are talking with MLB about a possible settlement, T.J. Quinn reports. If he comes to an agreement, Rodriguez would avoid the threat of a lifetime ban and preserve at least some of the nearly $100 million the Yankees owe him through 2017.

BUCK SHOT: Buck Showalter complained that the Yankees are going to save a lot of money toward the luxury tax and revenue sharing if A-Rod is suspended. The result? Showalter said Matt Wieters will be a Yankee after the 2015 season.

WHAT'S NEXT: If Rodriguez is not suspended today, then he is expected in Trenton, N.J., on Friday to play for the Double-A Thunder. However, a ruling or a settlement by Selig could prevent that from happening.

WHAT'S ON-DECK: We will have all the news here on ESPNNewYork.com. We will be talking about it on ESPN New York 98.7 FM. You can follow Wallace Matthews and me on Twitter. Plus, I'll be on SportsCenter from here all day.
